Roger Broer | Genetic Memory

October 6, 2018 - January 13, 2019

Visual Arts Center | Egger Gallery 

In this exhibition of recent monotypes by Oglala Lakota artist Roger Broer, enigmatic images connected by the repeated forms of animals and mysterious eyes invite us to search for our own connections to the work as we explore color, form and the histories that live in our memories and DNA. 

Roger Broer grew up in rural Randolph, NE. He received his BA in art from Eastern Montana College, now Montana State University Billings, and completed additional graduate-level coursework in fine art at Central Washington University. A full-time artist since 1979, Broer has exhibited his work in more than thirty-five solo exhibitions and more than one hundred group shows throughout the United States. He has received awards from the Native People of the Plains Show, Rapid City, SD; the Northern Plains Indian Art Market, Sioux Falls, SD; the Red Cloud Indian Art Show, Pine Ridge, SD; and the Santa Fe Indian Market, Santa Fe, NM.

Broer serves on the art acquisition boards of the Akta Lakota Museum in Chamberlain, SD, and Crazy Horse Memorial’s Indian Museum of North America in the Black Hills of South Dakota. His work is included in many collections at institutions including the Washington Pavilion Visual Arts Center, Sioux Falls, SD; the Akta Lakota Museum & Cultural Center, Chamberlain, SD; and the Museum of Nebraska Art, Kearney, NE. Broer resides in Hill City, SD.
